To Whom it May Concern Amanda Williams and Jason Kaufman, Safety Coordinator January 10, 2013 Grain Bin Safety Training
A grain bin safety training program is scheduled for Thursday, March 14 at the Brinkley Convention Center, 1501 Weatherby Drive in Brinkley. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.; the program will begin at 10 a.m. Lunch and refreshments will be served. The training will be presented by Grain Systems Incorporated. The first half of the training will be in a classroom setting, with the second half being a hands-on demonstration with the RES-Q Trainer, a portable training unit, demonstrating the use of coffer dams. The trainer and supervised training program create a safe, controlled environment for relevant and critical rescue training that teaches not only prevention, but the proper actions to take in the event of an actual grain engulfment emergency. The training program is open to anyone directly related to grain bin use or first responders (firefighters, EMT, etc.) For those of whom this applies, the course will count toward continuing education credits. If you or others are interested in attending the training program, please complete the attached registration form and return by mail to Arkansas Farm Bureau Safety Department, P.O. Box 31, Little Rock, AR 72203, fax: (501) 228-1557 or e-mail form to email@example.com . Please feel free to share this information with those in your community who may be interested.
